Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Casserole

Last week, I made a few small loaves of Cilantro Quick Bread. Immediately, I was struck with inspiration for a new recipe featuring the savory bread.
I invited a few ballet dancer friends over to act as taste testers. 

The verdict? The casserole was devoured in under 15 minutes. I think it was a success! The only downside was GF Guy didn’t get to try any. It was gone by the time he got home! No matter what anyone says, ballet dancers know how to eat!

PS- We were far too busy having fun to take a decent picture. I’ve noticed my pictures are either fabulous, or devastatingly sad, nothing in between. *sigh* At least I commit one way or the other!
